Para sa imo ini, ‘Nay! (“This is for you, Mom!” in Bikol)
This short story was written by my late mother, Jean Llorin, a long time ago in English. A few years back, she asked me to draw pictures to go with her story. I’ve translated the story in Filipino and added a few more important details that I felt the story needed. A thumbnail of the first page is shown below.
Click on the link (title) below, not the thumbnail, to open the 4-page PDF file. All illustrations are by Samut-samot Mom.
Feel free to share this story with your children, students, and friends, but do not do so for profit or my mother’s ghost will haunt you!
Please note that I am not a writer (I’m actually an engineering graduate), so feel free to leave comments on how I can improve the story. Thanks!
